This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
This is a great improv exercise for teaching players to recognize patterns and heighten what has been established.
Everyone forms a backline. One person steps forward and says what object he is and what his function is, like "I'm a paperclip, and I hold loose papers together." A second person steps up and says what object he is, and what his similar function is,
like "I am a rubber band and I hold loose pieces of mail together." At that point a pattern is established and everyone just steps forward one-by-one and heightens the pattern:
- I am twine and I hold loose recyclable newspapers together.
- I am shackles and I hold loose chain gang prisoners together.
- I am religion and I hold loose communities together.
Repeat until it's as heightened as it's going to get, then start over again with a new object and function.
